Valerie Loureda joined WWE after a solid career in MMA. The former Bellator star reported to the WWE Performance Center in the summer of 2022. She made her WWE debut at an NXT 2.0 house show. Her televised debut is finally taking place. That being said, you can take this as your official spoiler warning. So, turn away if you don’t want that sort of thing in your life.

WWE taped the January 27, 2023, edition of NXT Level Up at the Performance Center on Tuesday. Valerie Loureda made her televised debut during the show. Although she put up a solid performance, Loureda lost to Dani Palmer at the NXT Level Up taping.

Elsewhere on the show, Dante Chen defeated Kale Dixon. Scrypts (formerly known as Reggie), meanwhile, picked up the win over Oro Mensah. For those wondering, Valerie Loureda wrestled under the ring name Lola Vice. The name was given to her back in September, but she revealed it to the world in December 2022.

Lola Vice was secretly filmed by NXT Anonymous several days ago. WWE’s first-ever Cuban American star was seen conversing with Elektra Lopez. The two, somehow, noticed the cameras. Lopez tried to confront the stalker who eventually got away.


It remains to be seen how Lola Vice will fare in her Level Up debut. The 24-year-old has previously said that MMA is easier than pro wrestling. Stay tuned to Ringside News for more from the world of pro wrestling.
